National Armed Forces Day is held in June each year. Each year the Community Council organise a flag raising event to show the communities support for the men and women who make up the Armed Forces community: from currently serving troops to Service families and from veterans to cadets. Armed Forces Day is also an opportunity to raise public awareness of the contribution made to our country by those who serve and have served in Her Majesty’s Armed Forces and the flag raising is always followed by refreshments to allow local school children a chance to talk with members of the British Legion, Royal Naval Association, Air Cadets, Army Cadets and other ex service personnel who may attend. Originally the service took place outside the Parish Office, but in 2012 it moved to the Memorial Gardens, on Parish Road in Tynant allowing a safer more appropriate space for the service.
Organised by a committee of local allotment holders and Community Councillors the annual community horticultural and craft show is held each year at Llantrisant rugby club. It is a lovely afternoon for the local community to catch up with each other and admire the handicrafts and growing skills of friends and family. The show is open to everyone and there is a special section for children. Children may also enter any of the main classes for no fee. If you would like to become involved in helping organise the show or require any further information please email: As well as small monetary awards for each class there are several overall cups and trophies presented each year.
Local residents, Brownies, Air Cadets and Army Cadets meet each year outside the Parish Office to remember those who gave their lives so we may live in peace. The service is led by Creighton Lewis, OBE from Tabor Baptist Church. However, the War Memorial Committee has recently secured funds for the erection of a proper war memorial for the people of Llantrisant and the local area that have lost their lives fighting for their country. Local resident Mike John has spent many hours compiling a list of names to be included, and it is hoped that the memorial will be erected, within the Bullring Area of the town, in time for the 2016 remembrance service.
Over 20 years ago, Mrs Olwen Chislett took a group of scouts under a street light in Beddau to sing carols for passers by. Since then the venue has changed to the library, to Llys y Cwm Hall, to St Michaels Church, to Beddau Community Centre and for the last couple of years in the sports hall at Bryn Celynnog Comprehensive School. Over the years the scouts have been joined by the primary school choirs from Llwyn Crwn Primary School, Gwaunmeisgyn Primary School and YGG Castellau and also representatives of the music department at Bryn Celynnog Comprehensive School. The RCT Community Band have also recently started to attend ensuring a successful evening enjoyed by all. The Community Council are grateful to Llantrisant Parish Church whose Minister or Curate always lead the proceedings which traditionally end with the arrival of Father Christmas.
